Experience reality in reverse. Look straight ahead and walk backwards on this unique tour of Norwich.

By turning us in the opposite direction, Johannes Bellinkx forces us to become aware of how we navigate the world. With a hypnotic soundtrack and fusion of fiction and reality, Reverse is a unique physical and mental experience.

‘Your field of vision becomes widescreen, the focus broadens; as if you’re withdrawing from everything.’ **** Volkskrant

Thanks to Amsterdamse Fonds voor de Kunsten, Stichting NDSM, Das Theatre, Over het IJ Festival. With the support of Fonds Podiumkunsten.

Reverse is presented thanks to the mobility programme of the IN SITU platform in the frame of the ACT project, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
